History In 1858, a young employee from the sewing machine manufacturer Singer makes an invention that is a small revolution in the world of footwear. It democratizes the shoe sewn on leather sole and meets with great success. Advantages The Blake welt models are light and flexible, and even more on a rubber sole. The visual of the shoe is finer than a Goodyear construction. However, from a technical point of view, durability and impermeability are less than with a Norwegian or Goodyear construction. Plained leather Close Plained leather Homogeneous skin pressed with a smooth, warm plate. Genuine rubber sole Close Genuine rubber sole Our soles and heels are always made with the same vulcanization blends and processes as originally used in the long history of Paraboot. Rubber develops the best of its physical and mechanical properties, namely comfort, flexibility and resistance to wear, even if the latter also depends heavily on the use and the wearer of the shoes. Our rubber blends come from France, and are vulcanized on our presses in our Saint Jean de Moirans workshop. Made in France Close Made in France Our workshops are located in Saint Jean de Moirans, in the heart of the French Alps. Paraboot did not wait for the "Made in France" to be recognised, and has ensured we are a company with societal responsibility and strong ethics! For more than 100 years, we have struggled to preserve our artisanal production methods and safeguard our know-how. Richard-Pontvert is labeled "Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant" by the French Government. Handmade Close Handmade From the manufacturing of soles to packaging, running through leather cutting, stitching, assemblying and finishing, no less than 150 manual operations are required to make these shoes. As many steps as in 1908, at the formation of the company!
